Underlying the public support in the most populous US state is the widely shared belief that treatment for mental health conditions and alcohol or drug use problems helps those with such issues to lead healthy and productive lives. Under the plan, the federal government would offer a fixed amount of money for each Medicaid beneficiary rather than continue operating as an entitlement program. A few senators live-streamed their "search" for the elusive legislation, driving around the capital.
With a U.S. Senate vote expected soon on a bill to revamp the nation's health care system, little is known about the contents of the legislation and disability advocates are anxious that it will include deep cuts to Medicaid. He said Democrats in the Senate held more than 100 hearings before passing the Affordable Care Act in 2010.
To develop the policy priorities, the paper's authors analyzed ten health care proposals introduced between January 2015 and April 2017 and the specific provisions of the ACA. "They're feeling confident because they are not getting as many calls as before - they think you've given up".
"It's hard to oppose a bill we haven't seen, but given that we understand it to largely reflect the bill already passed in the House, we would definitely continue to oppose this assault on health care coverage", Tieman said.

Due to proposed cuts in Medicaid, among other changes, the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated that the AHCA would take health insurance from 23 million Americans by 2025.
Every one of the roughly 100 groups that is part of the consortium - a list ranging from Autism Speaks to The Arc, the National Down Syndrome Society, Easter Seals and the National Association of Councils on Developmental Disabilities - is opposed to the House bill known as the American Health Care Act, Musheno indicated. "Help us show them they're wrong".
Another economic impact that will result from Medicaid cuts could be the loss of thousands of jobs created with the expansion of the program under the ACA and the associated economic stimulation that resulted from increased employment.
The working class must fight for its own class interests. Current law requires that health plans cover "pediatric services, including oral and vision care". Such a fight requires the mobilization of the working class as a revolutionary force, independent of and opposed to both the Democratic and Republican parties.
